Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at stereolithography, part of Up and Running with 3D Printing.
…Stereolithography, abbreviated SLA, was the first 3D printing technology.…And it's still a common way to produce high quality prints.…Stereolithography starts with a vat of liquid resin.…A laser traces a path on the surface of the…resin, curing a section that will become the 3D print.…The print raises or lowers depending on the model, in tiny increments.…Curing layer after layer until the print is complete.…Another related technology is called DLP, or Digital Light Processing.…
These printers use projected light instead of a laser to cure liquid resin.…Stereolithography printers are found in both high-end commercial settings, as well…as in smaller desktop machines that cost a few thousand dollars.…This is a stereo lithography print.…This is what it look like directly from the printer.…Let's talk about some of the specifics of SLA.…Objects are often oriented at 45 degrees during the printing process.…And while the vat of resin support overhanging geometry to a degree.…Support struts are often added to assure that all…
